    yup, I reported three on a busy domain forum. they chose their image URL (the link) so that it looked like a link to a smilie image.
    The internet is a fad.

    Gibson, you're just talking about link spam, I'm talking about MUCH worse.

    understood. cookie stuffing is worse.

    for others to know what I was referring to,........

    what I was talking about is a link that looks like a link to a smilie or icon.

    like this http://www.abestweb.com/forums/images/smilies/wave.gif

    when the link is clicked, the browser window ends up at amazon.

    bored people might click it to see what the smilie looks like.
